Jesus Anointed at Bethany
Today's Passage: John 12:1-9
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
1. Six days before the Passover celebration began,
Jesus arrived in Bethany,
the home of Lazarus ⏤ the man he had raised from the dead.
2. A dinner was prepared in Jesus' honor.
Martha served, and Lazarus was among those who ate with him.
3. Then Mary took a twelve-ounce jar of expensive perfume
made from essence of nard,
and she anointed Jesus' feet with it,
wiping his feet with her hair.
The house was filled with the fragrance.
4. But Judas Iscariot,
the disciple who would soon betray him, said,
5. "That perfume was worth a year's wages.
It should have been sold and the money given to the poor."
6. Not that he cared for the poor ⏤ he was a thief,
and since he was in charge of the disciples' money,
he often stole some for himself.
7. Jesus replied,
"Leave her alone she did this in preparation for my burial.
8. You will always have the poor among you,
but you will not always have me."
9. When all the people heard of Jesus' arrival,
they flocked to see him and also to see Lazarus,
the man Jesus had raised from the dead.
John 12:1-9 NLT
